3.5⭐️ I felt it was a decent read; for most of it I just kinda glossed over the book but by the end of the book, I started to enjoy it. #2021 #averymerryreadathon #christmas #mystery #fiction #bookreview #bookstagram #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs +41pts #readingeurope2021 #Ireland🇮🇪

I‘ve been researching books that I could read for my #readingeurope2021 challenge and it feels like it‘s a near impossible thing to do. I am thinking of possibly doing some shortcuts and possibly use one book for many countries and using a book that takes place in Yugoslavia for some of the countries that were once part of Yugoslavia. I don‘t want to be stuck w/ books I don‘t want in the end.

melissajayne Basically I‘m not going likely finish the challenge, at least properly. 6mo

4.75⭐️ I really liked the book. Even though the characters were real people, the author did an excellent job of making Emil and Adelaide shine. The duel points of view were really well done. The one thing I didn‘t like was that he rushed the ending. Personally I wished he had ended the book at Chapter 40 and not added Chapter 41. #2021 #fiction #basedonatruestory #historicalfiction #bookreview #bookstagram #wwii #coldwar #ukraine🇺🇦

I‘m going to be extending #readingeurope2021 into 2022. I‘ve got a lot on my plate at the moment and I will hopefully be able to complete this challenge next year.

3.25⭐️ I actually really liked the story, but the reason for the down grade in rating is simply due to the fact that I took too long to read the book and that I felt that I missed most of the story. #2021 #bookreview #bookstagram #noir #mystery #translation #fiction

3⭐️ While I liked that the author took a risk in having the book from the point of view of a boy, I really think that it wasn‘t a great success. The story itself is interesting, but I think if she had written from the point of view of the character as an adult, it would have been more effective. #2021 #bookstagram #bookreview #fiction #historicalfiction #wwii #readingeurope #Wales🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 #readingeurope2021 #bookspinbingo

Feeling like tossing in the towel on the #readingeurope2021 challenge I‘m hosting. Nobody seems to be posting about it. Just it‘s true that when I host something it‘s basically a dud and nobody cares. Might as well just call it off.

Bookwormjillk I‘m still doing it just haven‘t read anything in a while 11mo

ShelleyBooksie I'm a slacker who doesn't do reading challenges or I would sign up. Hope you have a better day today ♡ 11mo
